Sunday July 18th
In view of the extremely hot weather we are having at the moment, I am delaying sending out plants until it cools down which hopefully will be next week, beginning July 26th. I apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.
We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
Plants are delivered by DPD next day delivery which is fully tracked so you can see when your plants will arrive.
Commonly known as 'Houseleeks' or 'Hen and chicks', Sempervivums are well-loved and easy to grow. For many, it was Sempervivums that captured their imagination as a child and sparked a life-long love of gardening.
Planted in a shallow trough or pot, Sempervivums will provide an interesting feature year-round, especially beside a front door or on the patio. They will thrive in most garden soils and are particularly tolerant to dry, poor areas which brings out the rich colours of their succulent leaves. At this time of year, their curious flowers appear and are particularly attractive to bees and other beneficial insects.
Shown here is a tub I planted up which decorates the table on my patio.

Orders are delivered by DPD using their next day delivery service. Parcels may be tracked with the option of designating a 'safe place' to leave your plants should you not be home when the driver calls. If you are self-isolating, give details of where you would like your plants left and I will add them to the parcel.
